The GC752X and GC752XP offer lots of PoE power, uplinks and ports for expansion while delivering whisper-quiet operation for easy placement of devices.  Our Insight-managed smart Cloud switches don’t require complex software, additional hardware, or a large IT staff to power your business-critical infrastructure.”

  • VLANs (including Auto-VoIP & Auto-Video) and LLDP support
  • Port trunking / Link aggregation and IGMP snooping
